    WPG vs STL - Series Thread

    Trouba is a RFA right? Do we have what it would take to grab him and can we afford it?

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    I wonder if Draper will end up being a GM somewhere. 2 Years ago before Yzerman step down from being GM in TBL. I was fairly sure, Draper was on track of taking over. I just couldn't see Yzerman leaving TBL at the time.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Yeah I agree. 22 years is such a long time, even if he was a major part of Yzerman taking over, like the Wings are playing it out to be. No way it's doesn't effect him in some way. This way right after. He appears to be more up beat, I think?
  4. Anyone have a quick run down on Yzerman history in TBL? In terms of significant draft picks, trading, UFA and RFA signings. Along with any unfavorable moves or picks he has made? Maybe should of made another topic for something like that.

    He just looked really tired to me.

    Right. That's kind of where I was leading.

    2019 Draft

    So how much more confident are we in this up coming draft with Yzerman as the GM?

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Pretty happy the Wings are bringing back Yzerman. To be honest, Holland has started to win me back over the last 2 seasons. He's done some great drafting, he has his flaws without a doubt and I am sure Yzerman will as well. Anyone have a link to his press conference?

    NYI vs PIT - Series Thread

    Watching PIT now, is anyone else reminded of the 2010-13ish RedWings? Almost like looking into a mirror in some ways.

    2019 Draft

    Right, I was hoping for one of Byram or Podolzkin if we didn't pick 1 or 2. I guess we still have a chance.

    Happy with 6th Pick?

    I am pissed that CHI won the 3rd overall pick. Wings picking 6th and falling again sucks as well. Just just bummed out on the season in general. The lottery is the cherry on top the cake.

    2019 Draft

    Where would Zadina rank in this draft?
  17. I just don't see Byram lasting to 6. Here to hoping Podkolzin falls to us. I know a lot of people are scared of him staying in the KHL. But at 6 I would take the chance. The problem we may run into, is too many wingers again.. The only thing that makes this season not feel like a waste at this point is if Yzerman truly comes back.
  18. Some reason I am more pissed than I though I'd be.
  19. It's super shady. Many have thought that for a while.
  20. I am more pissed that CHI is going to get a top 3 pick than the RedWings dropped 2 spots. It's a freaking joke

    2019 Draft

    I guess that can be said for some. But in 2 of my fantasy keeper leagues I've run / co-run we've been doing it for the last 2 years. In a fantasy keepers, it works pretty great as well. For myself, when I first heard about it, it was pretty much after EDM drafted McDavid, so I was all for anything that would stop EDM tanking year after year.

    2019 Draft

    It would never happen but.. If DET won 1st overall, VAN won 2nd. DET 1st pick to VAN for 2nd+Petterson? I don't VAN would dare to do that, I am just being silly about the Hughes brothers thing. I am guessing VAN would be more than happy with sticking with Petterson+Kakko over Hughes.

    2019 Draft

    Yea I've mention in passing in a post a week or two ago. The Gold Plan is a solid idea. It's at least in the right direction in my opinion. I think the idea kind of starter floating around in 2016. But a bunch of grumpy old owners don't like it from what I've read about in the pass.

    2019 Draft

    My 10 on tankathon. 1. COL - 2. NJ - 5. DET 1. LAK - 2. VAN - 5. DET 1. EDM - 2. BUF - 6. DET 1. NYR - 2. ANA - 6. DET 1. EDM - 2. LAK - 3. DET 1. COL - 2. VAN - 6. DET 1. BUF - 2. DET - 3. NYR 1. NYR - 2. COL - 5. DET 1. DET - 2. MIN - 3. BUF 1. ARI - 2. PHI - 3. DET ARI jumping 13 spots as well as PHI jumping 8 in the same lottery would be crazy. If EDM and BUF go 1 - 2 I will forever believe the lottery is truly rigged. I was happy to see CHI not once make it into the top 10 in any of my sims. Lots of 5-6 picks for DET makes hurts deep down. NJ only had 1 sim in the top 3 out of my 10 sims, ouch.
